This piece of news may be a non-issue for some. But anyone that has followed the career of Billy Joel might be well enamored of his The Nylon Curtain gem from 1982. I can say that I find the album to be his unsung masterpiece. With songs like “Allentown”, “Laura”, “Pressure”, and the unrelenting perfection of “Goodnight Saigon”, the album has more going for it than it was/is given credit for.
For those of us with SACD players, and some of you lucky to have PS3s with SACD capability, it is my absolute pleasure to inform you that Mobile Fidelity will be reissuing this classic in Original Master Recording series Hybrid SACD format on October 2.
What more can I say about this than I’m very excited. As excited as I am to get a Steve Wilson remixed Trilogy (ELP) album. And let me say…that’s quite excited.
Thanks, Mobile Fidelity. You have just made my year!
